MI175|18JUN (DPS-SIN) operated by 9V-MGP returned to Bali due to a technical issue and has remained grounded there since.

Seem like the 737NG are also having issues. Cracks have been found at the pickle forks.

I found this PPRuNe post quite useful in explaining what this aircraft part was.

Unlike the issue with mother of pearl spoons, this issue with pickle forks looks quite serious...

The pickle forks attached the plane fuselage (body) to the wings structure and manage forces.

It seems like we are down to just one A319 for the time being.

9V-SBH has not flown since MI341|19NOV (KUL-SIN).

9V-SBG operating MI772|24NOV (SIN-USM) RTB this morning. FR24 playback shows that it made it to RWY02C for departure, so likely a rejected take-off.

Subsequently MI774|24NOV (SIN-USM) and the respective return flights had to be cancelled as well since they do not have a suitable aircraft for Koh Samui services.

9V-SBH is down for a landing gear change. Should be out in a couple of days.

Her C checks starts next week.

Yeah. Mandatory inspections for all 738s. But SLK aircraft are relatively young. So inspections will not be due for the next few years.
